These couldn’t be easier, and the simple marinade used to baste the shrimp can be used for other summer skewers as well, like chicken, veggie, scallop, etc.


  • For marinade:

  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Choose one of the following seasonings:
  • 1 Tbsp. Pyramid Peak Lemon Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. California Citrus Rub
  • For skewers:

  • 1 lb. large shrimp, peeled with tails in tact
  • Optional: onion and tomato pieces
  • 4 to 8 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for at least 30 min.


Preheat grill to medium-high. Mix orange juice and olive oil with choice of seasoning to make a marinade. Add shrimp and toss to coat. Let shrimp sit in marinade for about 15 min. Thread skewers with shrimp; alternate shrimp with onion and tomato pieces if using. Brush both sides of skewers with remaining marinade. Grill for 2 to 3 min. per side or until shrimp is cooked through, brushing again with any remaining paste while cooking if desired. Serve immediately.
